Somewhat large (approximately 3 inches across). Tan base color with purple-grey markings and black/yellow/white circular patterns near wing center. Interesting feather-like antennae.
Found in Northeast Missouri, near mostly fruit and nut orchards, but other wooded areas are nearby
Unfortunately, this moth was brought indoors where the photo was taken (against a sheet of copy paper for contrast)
